places to cut spending without short changing things like education, job training, research and technology, all of which are critical to our prosperity to a 21st century economy. but spending cuts must be balanced with more reforms to our tax code. the wealthiest individuals tand biggest corporations shouldn't be able to take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. as i said earlier this week one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. if congress refuses to give the united states the ability to pay the bills on time the consequence force the entire global economy could be catastrophic. last time congress threat bd this course of action our entire economy suffered for it. our families and our businesses connot afford that dangerous game again. i congratulate the newly sworn in members of congress and i look forward to working with the new congress in a bipartisan way. if we focus on the interest of our country boof the interest of party i'm convinced we can cut

teachers to take bits and pieces and create their own lessons. think of it as open source education. >> i think there's lots of occasions where businesses might try opening up and be surprised at what happens. for example, we wanted to translate t.e.d. into the other languages instead of paying for thousands of translators to do it, unaffordable frankly, we opened it up and made the transcripts free for anyone to look at. translators then applied at volunteers. we paired them up with each other so they could check each other and we've ended up with the library being translated into more than 80 languages as a volunteer effort. >> like t.e.d., we are posting my interview with chris anderson online. it's worth watching on our bl blog@cnn.com/your money. i'll tweet it out, as well. thank you for joining the conversation this week on "your money." we're here every saturday at 189 p.m. eastern and sunday at 3:00 p.m. eastern. tweet me, high handle is @ali velshi and have a great weekend. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> good afternoon. i'm martin savidge. thank you very much for
